Most tests I've taken focus on DC circuit analysis, electrostatics, magnetism, with some boolean algebra/digital logic, and some specifics on different components

Also, they're division B, so probably minimal boolean logic (I've seen a couple basic questions, but not at competitions that I went to, only practice tests). I'd say a typical test has some magnetism, trivia and history, a lot of basic circuit analysis questions, and 1 or 2 more complex circuit analysis questions (eg. finding current in a parallel circuit). Division B only has veryyy simple questions on AC, if any (I've only ever seen stuff like "do batteries produce AC or DC" and similar "what does this appliance use, AC or DC" questions).
The lab portion tends to be something like "make these LEDs light up" or "find the resistance of these resistors based on the resistance bands."
